Abstract [en]

This thesis posits that the scout camp can fruitfully be studied as a technological environment, more specifically as an infrastructure of the simple life. Mainly based upon periodicals, handbooks, still and moving pictures (from the Swedish boy scouts 1910–1930, but with international outlooks) it draws upon the Foucauldian notion of the apparatus (dispositif) as well as theory on modern infrastructure. Particular attention is payed to the role of work, leisure and community building at and around the camp site.      

The simplification of the camp site – socially as well as technologically – was strategic in the sense that it enabled other goals and functions on a larger, societal level. To some extent it can also be seen as a critique of a growing complexity in modern life. A shared infrastructural sensibility finally grew out of the camp life, connecting scouts on a scale that stretched from the individual to the world.
